"I guess it's the fact that we don't have sufficient evidence from fire investigators to positively conclude that they died in this fire," says TBI's Kristin Helm. "It makes us want to make sure that they are not somewhere else."
The local community continues to support the family through all of this. The children's school has posted a message and white ribbons on its sign asking folks to pray for the family. At this time, investigators do not have any evidence of foul play, but it's clear this case is changing. TBI investigators are now interviewing family members, including the children's biological parents. We will continue to follow this story as more developments unfold. Right now, autopsies must still be completed on the bodies of the grandparents. Then after that, the family can begin to make funeral arrangements. You can always go to Fox17.com for the latest on this story any time of the day. FOX17's John Dunn will join us in the studio TONIGHT with more on the new developments in this story.

Updated conservatorship statute effective July 1
May 21, 2013 12:49 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Gov. Bill Haslam has signed into law revisions to the state conservatorship statute.
The law allows the court to appoint a conservator to manage the assets of a person a judge finds unable to handle his or her own affairs.
State Rep. Andrew Farmer, a Sevierville Republican, told The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/1183hjy ) the intent of the bill he sponsored in the House is to make sure people aren't being taken advantage of.
The bill sprang from a series of hearings statewide by the Tennessee Bar Association. They revealed there were no uniform procedures for placing a person's assets under a conservator on an emergency basis.
The changes take effect July 1.
